    Sorry, should have updated. Found my issue, I had mistakenly put the skin files in the wrong folder.

    Fixed.

    So here's my little contribution to the LSX thread. We all know void is a great skin, visually pleasing and feature packed.

    No argument there.

    But the same thing that makes it visually pleasing is what makes it, shall we say, hard to read in daylight conditions on anything less than a high dollar "transflective" screen. Shades of grey, translucent grey overlays, and less than the highest contrasting colors (the skin is pretty close to one big collection of shades of grey). There's just not enough lumens getting out of the LCD and the CR of the colors isn't enough for high light conditions.

    If you read back, I was making a skin in pposite colors, but it's just too difficult given the current images. And as LS has stated before, it looks "washed out".

    So I took a different tack. And here it is:

    First, copy your LSX folder in the skin directory, then paste it in the same location. Call it "LSX 3.0 Day" or whatever you wish.

    Next, paste the files below into the folder. It should ask you to overwrite the existing files. Save the image to your new skin folder and call it MENU EMPTY. png. Save the next image to the dsame file and call it MENU_OFF. png. You will need to change the MENU.TXT file to MENU.SKIN or it won't work!

    Then, select a background that is white. You can either make just a white image in PS, or a picture that uses mostly white (or any other shade of white, it just should be bright).

    Lastly, define this new skin as you day skin in RRconfig.

    You're done! Check it out and see what you think. It's not perfect, but the colors are tweaked enough to give the best contrast available (black and white).

    This was just a quick job, I'll repost as I refine the image.

    Rapid share downloads for the png's:

    I re uploaded teh menu_off.png in the second post. I originally left the white fill layer in the picture which effected transparancy. The new .png fixes that .

    Hmmm, it appears the forums won't allow me to attach a .png file without turning it into an actual picture.

    You need the file instead of a copy of the picture.

    PM me an email adress if you want the file, otherwise the transparency layers won't work...........

    *EDIT* I'm going to upload the files to a free file share. Please, No more PM's!
    I'll post the link when it's up.


    Here's a quick pic of what mine looks like:


    The song title scrolls across and it's caught in "mid scroll" if you think it looks off center.

    Still tweaking it..............

    Cheers

    hey people!

    Just dropping in. Havnt had much of any time recently. So im not ignoring anyone's PM's etc, just havnt been around much. Im still making improvements to the skin, just little bit by little bit.

    Thanks to Greatwhite for taking the inititive to do what i havent had the time to do. Its pretty much exactly what i had planned for the dayskin (minus the white around the buttons) but it looks good and should make a few people happy.


    So i guess what you really want to know is , where's that update
    ... yeah i know, you've heard this before. Its comeing soon!
    someone asked if it would be by the end of this month, and while i cant promise anything, its very possible that will happen. The sooner the better, so i can start work on void 4.0 which will be rebuilt from the ground up and have an all new look etc. So im probably going to stop all updates on the 3.x series once it reaches 3.5 and then focus on ripping everything apart and redoing it.

    more later.
